Synopsis

The three Cheeseman children, their father, and their psychic dog are all on the run. From whom? Well the CIA, naturally. But also corporate agents #5, #29, and # 207, plus two international superspies -- one of whom happens to be a chimpanzee. They all want Dr. Cheeseman and his late wife's greatest invention-a machine with unspeakable powers-OK, I'll say it. It's a time machine. But it's not working right yet, so put all ideas of time travel out of your head.Instead, please enjoy this high stakes, high action, hijinx-filled chase. And the bizarre characters our Cheeseman friends will meet as they protect not just their parents' invention, but their mother's sacred memory. It's an adventure novel like no other. Oh yeah, and did we mention the entertaining, plot-exposition filled, unsolicited advice you'll receive along the way? So you didn't ask for it? Yeah, that's why it's unsolicited. Unsolicited Advice #1: Read this book.Look for the second book in this series, Another Whole Nother Story-and keep an eye out for book three, coming next year!
 

About Dr. Cuthbert Soup

Due to a remarkable physical resemblance, Dr. Cuthbert Soup is often mistaken for writer Gerry Swallow, who began his career as a stand-up comic, making numerous appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Dr. Soup's doppelganger then turned his attention to writing movies, including the blockbuster hit, Ice Age: The Meltdown. Other than the aforementioned uncanny likeness, Dr. Soup has absolutely nothing in common with Mr. Swallow, who lives with his wife and children in a very tiny mansion, whereas Dr. Soup lives in a huge mansion with his dog, Kevin, his pet snails, Gooey and Squishy, and his parents, Filbert and Roberta Soup.

City Book Review

One funny thing in the book is the author provides “unsolicited advice” in between chapters for readers since he is vice president of the “National Center for Unsolicited Advice.” This book is a good read—if you read at least the second book in the series first.
